  1. Jackson, The VATUSA Knowledge Base covers this situation, please read it. You are not a member of ZOA until you join the facility (after passing the VATUSA Basic/S1 Exam, which you have). https://www.vatusa.net/help/kb#q8
  2. Davis, All facilities in VATUSA have published training policies/manuals that lay out expectations of students. If you are having issues finding this, or if you have other problems, please contact your Training Administrator. If you are not in a facility and have a question please e-mail myself and my Deputy, Austin Wilkins. vatusa3 and vatusa13 at vatusa dot net.
  3. For #FAAland: 7110.65 3-9-10 is your friend here for the proper phraseology. (Aircraft) Runway (number), cleared for takeoff. When discussing the surface wind, it should go between the runway number and the clearance. "American One, Runway tree one right, wind two eight zero at eight, cleared for takeoff". Appending "immediate" is governed by 2-1-5a (Though immediate is moreso an ICAO approved language not specific in the .65): "a. Use the word 'immediate[ly]' only when expeditious compliance is required to avoid an imminent situation." Usage of "without delay" should be limite
  4. You did everything right as Ryan noted. Please file feedback with ZAB regarding this, https://www.zabartcc.org/feedback
  5. I participated, there were quite a few AC back in 2014, the second attempt at it really went down in flames. It needs even more preparation and planning than Cross the Pond! Especially since most of the routes are ssssooooo long. Finding a way to limit it to 8 hour flights (somehow) would make more sense. There are lots of other crossings that could be cool though.
  6. Light Up America has happened a few times, that is similar to this event.
  7. Joshua, Yeah I can understand the frustration there, I have to zoom in on my charts usually to make stuff out.
  8. Joshua, You can pre-file your flightplan via https://cert.vatsim.net/fp/ As an aside, if you are using JAWS you should be able to get contextual menus to work though trial and error is certainly the case!
  9. I have used the payware one that is out just fine in v4.2.
  10. Getting a "website under heavy load" message and 503 when I try to use the API.
  11. I think pilots are getting more and more use to holds. That is definitely a great thing to see. Three of the last six FNOs required holds of at least ten minutes.
  12. ZOA did a fantastic job dealing with the weather and the vast amount of arrivals. It is great to have seen just how busy the past five or six FNOs have been! Weather can make them more fun (on both sides).
  13. Too true, too sad. Really needs payware scenery
